I've been on this board once maybe twice. I'm pregnant with my second child. Eamon was a c-section due to him being distressed. I'm planning on a vbac with this one. I'm starting to stress now that she isn gonna end up making me have a c-section. I'm having TONS of pressure down in my vagina and pelvic area. So now i'm worried that the dr is gonna tell me no because they dont want the scar tissue to tear/rupture because the pressure. Its so intence. I NEVER had this kind of thing with my son. It hurts to walk sometimes. Plus i've been having really bad cramps the last few days, I know shes still way early, but is it bad i'm hoping she comes like soon so that she's small enough to fit??? Just want some imput if you can on what you think about all the pressure and pain i'm having down there lol.


Oooooh, and do you know if they can give pitocin to help with labor if you want a vbac or is that considered inducing?

I'd think it's her moving into position. I know I felt pretty intense pressure and some pinching pains in my cervix the last 6 weeks. Try to relax and sway side to side when you feel the pain... Remember to breathe too.

They did give me pitocin but were VERY VERY careful!

You know, I don't have much time, but I'm going to jump in and say the intense pressure and pain in your pubic area is really common. It's called pubic symbiosis or something and happens when you have kids close together. It is not too late to switch a provider nor can any provider force you to have a c-section. I know others will jump in and give you great advice!

It sound like it's probably normal pregnancy pains. If it was your scar, it wouldn't be vaginal/pubic pain.

Yes, if you get pitocin, it's considered induction or augmentation. Some doctors do use it still, but VERY carefully. It's something you'd just have to talk to your doctor about.

I understand the desire to have your baby arrive early to make sure that they wont be too big, but it's a fear you need to put aside. Unless you have a medical condition such as untreated gestational diabetes, you really wont grow a baby bigger than you can push out. And if you can't push the baby out, it's a positioning issue. Either with you or the baby.

You can do this! I know you're uncomfortable, but it's not going to last forever. It's just 2 more months.

I thought the same.... that if it was your scar it wouldn't be in that area. I am only 25 weeks with #2 so I haven't reached that point yet, but I have heard things are a lot more painful after you have had one. If you are really concerned I would talk to the doctor. My doctors say no inducing "especially no Pitocin" if I want a vbac. Sorry you are in pain!

I'm really hoping that all goes well i'm so excited to have her naturally, HOPEFULLY with no oain meds, but we will see how long thats gonna last. I'm ready to meet this little lady whos been making me so very uncomfortable the last 8 months lol.
